Princeton student’s take on second life and other innovation
In a word, he says the project was ‘dumb.’ He’s glad its over. Blackboard, just one of Princeton’s course management systems (and vendor for Notre Dame’s only cms as well) has a role at Princeton, as do other classroom technologies. Zakin also proposes Princeton provide course syllabi from previous class iterations to inform student class selection, something Notre Dame is on the cusp of releasing (coming spring 2010).
Peter spends quite a bit of his blog post extolling MIT’s Open CourseWare initiative, encouraging Princeton to get involved (Notre Dame already is) as a win-win for those not as privileged as himself, as well as for strengthening Princeton’s international reputation as an ‘elite university’. His post is here.
